The flight is very smooth with no turbulence at all. The food lunch is good. I had a roast beef sandwich and salad.
I was visiting the cockpit while boarding gate. The captain is going to retire next year of December 2001. His Birthday on Nov 19th. He will be the last flight on Dec 1st, 2001. Wow! FAA is allowing a little bit over 60 age. He is from Palm Springs, California. Captain is very friendly.

The flight was smooth and weather is clear all the way. We had a very light turbulence a few times. Not bad! The food is good the empanada with broccoli and cheese. Salad.
I was visiting the cockpit while the boarding gate. The captain is a flight director for training from Denver Flight Center. He is very young around 35-40. Captain is teaching the first officer. First officer will become Captain 777 soon. F/O is around 50’s. They are very friendly.
My friend lives in Denver. He wanted to go Chicago with me for a few days. He sat window seat 45A behind me. That’s cool! We are lucky prefect reservation. My flights were great and on time both ways.
Good Job United Airlines!
